Map Problem Area Instantly
Leveraging NetBrain’s dynamic capability, you can map an unstable network automatically. For example, map around a device with a flapping port or map an unstable area (e.g. NY Region).
Visualize Unstable Network
Turn on live monitoring to visualize which devices are unstable, whether for physical or logical reasons. Flapping ports will be highlighted in yellow. For more transient issues, collect data over several hours or days to capture the fault.
Analyze Dynamic Route or CAM Tables
NetBrain automatically creates and organizes route tables for every device. You can quickly identify flapping routes by sorting the route table by route age. Flapping routes will have the youngest age.
Drill-Down with Automation Procedures
There are hundreds of possible causes of unstable networks. Use NetBrain to quickly run the problem to ground. Drag and drop entries from the route table to identify the source of the unstable route. Then run automation procedures, such as ‘Detect CRC Errors’ or ‘Detect OSPF MTU Mismatch’ to identify the root cause.
